Mil­lion­aire mar­ried grand­daugh­ter by mis­take

The Sun (Malaysia) - - FRONT PAGE -

MI­AMI: A 68-year-old Florida mil­lion­aire re­ceived a “ter­ri­ble shock” af­ter learn­ing that he had mis­tak­enly mar­ried his own bi­o­log­i­cal grand­daugh­ter.

The man and his 24-year-old bride dis­cov­ered the un­for­tu­nate co­in­ci­dence as they leafed through one of his old photo al­bums.

The al­bum in­cluded pho­tos of the man’s chil­dren from his first mar­riage, from whom he had long been es­tranged.

His wife recog­nised her hus­band’s el­dest son as be­ing her own fa­ther.

The man, whose sec­ond mar­riage ended in di­vorce and fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties in 2009, won sev­eral mil­lion dol­lars in a lot­tery jack­pot two years later.

The woman, who had be­come es­tranged from her par­ents af­ter fall­ing preg­nant as a teenager, was work­ing as an ex­otic dancer in Jack­sonville when the pair, who have not been named, met through a dat­ing web­site.

The cou­ple have no plans to di­vorce. “If we’d never found out, we would’ve lived our lives hap­pily to­gether, and us be­ing re­lated shouldn’t change that,” the man said. – The In­de­pen­dent
